John Mayall – Jacksboro Highway lyrics
Just outside of Fort worth
Texas one ninetynine
There's a rundown strip of old night clubs
Been there for a very long time
Head on out towards Jacksboro
Till you see that neon flashing
Man they got it all there
If you're looking for some action

They got the craps game at the Black Cat
Strip tease at the Duce
Over at the Skyline
It's always loud and loose

Hey the winos bummin'
Rich folks slummin'
Watchout man
'cous the cops ain't going to

The Jacksboro Highway
Jacksboro Highway
Jacksboro Highway
There's always something going down

You better watch your back boy
You better cover your bets
The further down that road you go
The rougher it's gonna get

Remember that stabbing at the Peppermint lounge
Broken glass and Blood was on the ground
You better forget every thing you see
Even if it's murder in the first degree

Out on the Jacksboro Highway
Jacksboro Highway
Jacksboro Highway
There's always something going down

Hey the winos bummin'
Rich folks slummin'
Watchout man
'cous the cops ain't going to

The Jacksboro Highway
Jacksboro Highway
Jacksboro Highway
There's always something going down
